During my recent trip to America I spent a couple of weeks exploring the beautiful landscapes of Michigan. Having already visited once earlier this year I had a few must-do spots in mind beforehand, but thankfully I ended up seeing much more than I had hoped too.
On my first full day not only in the state but also the country, I ventured out to the beautiful little city of South Haven - just one of many picturesque beach towns alongside Lake Michigan. Lying on the Eastern shore of the lake, this beach is the perfect spot to watch the sunset over the water - and I was treated to a spectacular one that day, just in time before the snow set in.
When the real Michigan winter weather arrived, the temperatures were colder and the snow was heavier than I have ever experienced before... a bit of a change from the English winter I am used to and a very big change from the endless sunshine I had in Australia this time last year! The snow made the landscapes even more impressive and it made for a really fun (albeit very cold!) day of tubing. Sitting in the hot tub surrounded by snow in minus 16 Celcius is definitely an experience I will never forget!
